Staff Picks: A Phoenix First Must Burn, Edited by Patrice Caldwell

It’s Locus’s 2020 Holiday Countdown of Staff Picks!

Arley Sorg selects A Phoenix First Must Burn, edited by Patrice Caldwell, as a top anthology, calling the stories within “stunning works of Black girl magic, resistance, and hope.”

Colleen Mondor says, “Final verdict? A Phoenix First Must Burn is an enormously eclectic and entertaining collection. We need more Black girl magic – a lot more. And we need to be demanding why there hasn’t been more available to eager readers all along.”

You can read Colleen’s full review online, or in the March 2020 issue of Locus.
